About QRL Financial Services

More than a few thought that building a mortgage company in 2005, while established mortgage companies were going out of business, was a little crazy. But the team that formed what is now known as QRL Financial Services loved working in partnership with financial institutions and had become part of the community lending culture.

Most of the team worked together for many years before QRL Financial Services was formed. When the company that they worked for made the decision to exit the mortgage lending business, the group knew that they needed to apply what had been learned and create something better for the mortgage lending community.
